New Year. Old Car. January 1st, 2016

Well, hello 2016. We've managed to lurched into the new year with a car that shortly after all the holiday chaos was over, decided it was cold enough now to literally freeze up on us. And remained out of commission for a week or so.
The weather was all over the place for a few weeks of the year and the Sunday coffee runs were kept to quick trips there and back. No wintery photo safaris for now.
So the car. She's 27 years old. Almost a classic and I guess I should be ready for more of these unscheduled shut downs. 

Throttle bodies and fuel injectors are now part of my vocabulary. Who knows what other mysteries under her hood will introduce themselves to me......
I rather they didn't to be honest
So, stuck inside I decided to dig out / dust off my little used macro lens and give her a go. I've come to the conclusion that I sorely lack the knack and the talent to master the macro lens. But I shoot anyway. And here are some of the results. A couple of 'organic' shots and the rest are metal and coils and built up gunk.

Pixel's ear.
Pixel's neck fur.

Throttle body at all angles. 

The throttle body - where my fuel injector went to die.
